The Weekly Outfit: Colour and Contrast

It always struck me as terribly odd, why as soon as summer has ended all colour seems to have disappeared. Unfortunately most of us don’t experience that indian summer kind of fall. Instead it looks like someone worked the saturation controller, leaving a mishmash of different shades of grey; mouse-grey skies, stone-grey buildings and ash-grey faces. It’s as depressing as a black and white documentary on soviet-era cardboardbox factories. Don’t get me wrong. There are no objections to wearing grey. But if you are up for a subtle dash of colour to spice up your wardrobe, you might want to take a look at our suggestions bellow. Junya Watanabe x Duvetica – Down Vest
